Early release refused for teen rioter




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A Hamilton County judge Tuesday rejected a request for early release from the youngest person convicted of felony offenses stemming from the April riots and civil unrest.

        The teen, who is now 16 but was 15 at the time of the offenses, has been in juvenile detention for about six months.

        He was found guilty in August of seven felonies related to the unrest, including ethnic intimidation for the racially motivated beating of a white truck driver, and multiple counts of aggravated riot and robbery.

        The teen, who is black, was arrested June 22.

        His mother, Valerie Montgomery of Over-the-Rhine, begged Juvenile Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon to let her son come home. Judge Hendon said she would consider sending the teen to Hillcrest Training School, a juvenile detention facility in Springfield Township.
